Math and Computer Science teachers at TJHSST

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ)

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ) is seeking math and computer science teachers for Fall 2017. Established in 1985, TJ, located in Alexandria, VA about 10 miles outside of Washington, DC is the result of a partnership of businesses and schools created to improve education in science, mathematics, and technology. As the Governor's School for Science and Technology in Northern Virginia, the school is also supported by the Virginia Department of Education. Unlike some other specialized schools, TJ has a four-year, comprehensive, full day program which includes an activity period (resulting in an extended school day) and a full sports program.

The mission of TJ is to provide students with a challenging learning environment focused on math, science, and technology, to inspire joy at the prospect of discovery, and to foster a culture of innovation based on ethical behavior and the shared interests of humanity. The curriculum at TJHSST has as its foundation an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach to education that is driven by six foci: developing powerful communication skills, learning in a collaborative environment, thinking and working in systems, providing experience with real life projects, teaching change management, and infusing ethics throughout all aspects of school life.
